First, let’s take a quick look at how to use the printables with your little human…
How to use these printables in fun learning activities
Clearly, you can use these printables as straight-up worksheets – but maybe you’d like to do some activities instead – or alongside?
You can do that using the printables as a guide.
So what might active learning look like?
Let’s think through what your child’s doing with these worksheets and see how else you could get in the same learning:
Number formation – writing numbers right
For example, use the number formation worksheet to teach your child how to form the numbers correctly.
But they’ll probably need a fair bit of practise to get the digits the right way round consistently.
And there’s no need to write it on a sheet of paper.
You can write numbers in the dirt with a stick, on a dry-wipe board, with a finger in a tray of lentils – or even paint them or use giant chalk outside.
A dry wipe board – whether for chalk or pens – is also a great resource to have for formation practice.
I don’t know if your kids are like mine, but my little guy does NOT like it when his drawing or writing comes out in a way he didn’t want.
And that’s where dry-wipe is a life saver.
Just wipe it off and try again as many times as you need to.
It’s still the same task – and it’s worth doing it a variety of different ways – so your child gets plenty of practise of each number without it getting boring.
Number recognition activity
And for the sheet with the number-search grid, you can replace that coloring task with a number-hunt activity where you hide a bunch of numbers in ice or slime or around the house and say,
“Hey, can you find all the number tens?”
You’ll see whether they recognise number 10 just the same that way.
When you want them to count sets of objects correctly, instead of coloring they could count groups of toy dinosaurs, or apples on a plate or toys on a shelf.
They’ll be learning a new skill, you’ll see whether they can do it yet – and it won’t even feel like work.
